The weredwarf Urist McUrist has come! A bearded drunkard twisted into minute form. It is crazed for booze and socks. Its unwashed beard is tangled. It needs alcohol to get through the working day and has gone without a drink for far too long. Now you will know why you fear the mines.

Et tu, Urist

Not being a DrunkFortress player myself, I can without guilt add my +1 for its hilarity.

Yeah, a dwarf fortress played by humans trying to be dwarves.  You can guess who I'm voting for.

Sure.

I vote for hellcannon.
Ditto.

I mean Undead above ground AND below? How often does that happen?

Edit: +1 for Skyscrapes too. If that was real, it would be in at least the top 20 for the worlds tallest buildings. It's like Taipei 101 minus the top floor and the roof.
Haven't gotten around to reading Hellcannon yet, but I'll vote for Skyscrapes, for the sheer badassery of keeping aboveground construction consistent between years and players. Well, except when they didn't but Necromancers must piss themselves with envy at the great dwarven middle finger.

I'd feel stupid if I voted for my own thing, so I won't.

Actually, surviving at 0 pop? +1 for Hellcannon.
+1 for Hellcannon
+1 for Hellcannon.
+1 for Skyscrapes.

Votes added! Hellcannon has been inducted into the Hall of Legends! *dadurrrr*

+1 for !!DrunkFortress!!

A bunch of votes for Skyscrapes added!

aaaaand with that, the OP has broken the character limit. A fitting accomplishment for the new year- I knew I reserved those extra posts for a reason. Anywho, newly eligible for votes this month (apart from Drunk Fortress, which blew up the voting before I could even mention it) is The journey of Deebus, a kobold story. If you feel this thread is worthy of the Hall of Legends, vote now!

Finally, nominees in danger of being pruned at the end of the month. If The Legend of Lagdon does not receive the requisite number of votes by the end of the month, it will be removed from the list of nominees. If you feel this candidate is worthy of the Hall, vote now!

Deathgate has concluded and is no longer active.

Also, booyah for breaking the character limit.

It's probably worth mentioning that AnimaRytak is the only ecstatic dwarf in the entire fort.
Quick, check him for rum! The bastard's probably spirited some off to his lair office, to act as pleasant refreshment as his evil scheme unfolds!

I have a nomination for the Hall, an Epic Adventure at the Dawn of Time.  The idea, according to the author, is to "Gen a new HUGE world, and start playing from YEAR ONE.  That would mean super low population.  Super High Titan and mega beast population.  And it would mean each Dwarf is "the first of their kind"  No kids yet, no epic warriors, no time for anything. So EVERYTHING is new and from scratch."  It is the story of not one but many dwarves, and follows their quest as they attempt to found a fortress at the dawn of the world.

The quest has been divided into two parts.  The first uses adventure mode to create unique dwarves and bring them to the mountain home.  It is a community story, and players take turns creating a character and trying to bring them to the designated spot halfway across the world.  Most try and fail, but a few succeed.  Both the failures and triumphs are recorded on the thread linked above, or you can read the journeys so far in this PDF.  6 of the 7 necessary to found a fortress have been gathered, and the last will soon begin.

The second part, set to begin as soon as 7 have made it, will record their attempt to found a fortress at the dawn of time, and I look forward to their further adventures. The thread has been going on for almost a year, and I don't expect it to be finished any time soon! But what has transpired so far is enough for a recommendation to the hall.

(As a side note, I know dwarf fortress is not fleshed out enough for this to happen logistically.  When the fort is founded, 7 new dwarves will be introduced into the game.  But game mechanics are advanced enough so that the original 7 will eventually immigrate in to the fortress with their history intact.  It might take several years, but eventually the original 7 will be gathered again.)

Must a thread be a year old before it's ready to be nominated? It doesn't say anything about that in the OP, but yet some threads are "eligible to be nominated"
